About the Author
Noel Jones started singing chant at the age of 7 in a choir of men and boys and followed that up by chanting daily masses as a teenager in a small town in Ohio. Summer studies with Benedictine monks took him further along the chant path prior to his leaving for New York City where he directed Catholic choirs and was organist at the Church Center for the United Nations as well as accompanist for the United Nations Singers. Later in Germany he was organist for the English masses at the DOM Cathedral in Frankfurt. In Italy, he played for masses at Il Duomo in Barga, Italy and produced and conducted the town's annual San Cristoforo Day celebration concert in the 11th century church. Working as an opera coach, he has worked with singers in Germany, Italy and the United States As a church organ designer, he eventually located in Tennessee, where he joined the staff of a Catholic church as director of music, involved in returning church music to chant and polyphony. The choir grew from 16 to 46 under his leadership. He is an Associate of the American Guild of Organists and is a member of the Church Music Association of America. He serves as Creative Director at www.frogmusic.com. Most recently, he led Liturgical Music at a Catholic High School. He is a popular clinician for workshops on chant, choral conducting, organ registration and hymn playing.

I used it as a primer for myself and found it helpful and a good initial study. It is a good first book for a newbe to chant and a elementary musician.
It's available in many places around the web for price comparisons, but I see I purchased it here in 2009. If you're looking for something very down to earth and simple to absorb, this is it.
